required some strong leadership because it was shortly after the 101 california shootings that we realized very clearly different agencies within the city had to speak more deliberately with each other, had to have systems and communications and culture built around much more collaboration, particularly with communication. well, that spawned this particular building, and its housing of not only the emergency management, but its physical location of our 911 emergency dispatch system which is right upstairs, and that was started on and under the leadership of admiral bit dlf off. it was concluded very well. he then went on to what i say was parallel to me because i thought i was having the best job of my life of purchaser and we all got a different call and he went to the school district and we had fun with the most difficult assignments we could get, and if you ever work with the school district, and i know the school district is here it's a hard job, but it's one that he focused on with respect to their assets, their property, their role in emergency management and has faithfully well r

unique in all of san francisco and northern california, really. we viewed the outdoor area specifically as a source of differentiation and competitive advantage. these are the other premises, and marketed our project to investors accordingly. when you go to our website, the first thing you see is our slogan, our tag line. it reads, "take it outside." have we reason to believe we would be required to shut the outdoor area at 12:00 midnight we would have neither made the investment or entered into our lease. enforcing such a restriction now when we have relied on public records made electronically available by the planning department's website would substantially impair our reasonable expectation of realizing a return on our investment. our attorney inserted that language. i am here to tell you that enforcing this restriction will likely put an end to an otherwise successful new business in the city of san francisco that is creating jobs and helping to make our city a more vibrant place to live and work. i sincerely hope that you will side with us on this matter. thank you for your time a

that california state law is really narrow and doesn't a law us to take objection solely on public nudity, so certainly it puts the police department in a position where we're unable to take action regarding those complaints, and it certainly puts those officers in a position where they have to field complaints they're not able to act upon, and so from the police officer's perspective we support the legislation. >> thank you captain. colleagues any questions? great. >> so with that mr. chairman if there are no comments my colleagues and may we open it up to public comment? so i'm going to call off names and public comment will be two minutes. please speak directly into the microphone so that people in the chamber and people at home can hear you. when you have third seconds left you will hear a soft bell as a warning and when the two minutes are up you will hear a louder bell and you should finish up the sentence you're speaking, so with that i will call off a number of names.
